Enhancing Home Water Quality: A Closer Look at Physical Water Processing

Clean and safe water is a fundamental necessity for every household, regardless of its composition or location. Whether you are a family with young children, retired people, empty nesters, an eco-conscious consumer, or someone dealing with specific health conditions, ensuring your home’s water quality is of utmost importance. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of physical water processing, exploring its significance, processes, and how it works to provide you with the clean and pure water you deserve.

Understanding Physical Water Processing

Physical water processing is a vital aspect of maintaining good water quality, especially in areas with poor water quality or for individuals with specific health concerns. It involves a series of processes designed to remove impurities, contaminants, and particles from water using physical processing. Unlike treatment, such as using chemicals, which involves the use of additives, physical processing relies on techniques that do not introduce additional substances into the water.

Physical Water Treatment of Wastewater

Physical water treatment plays a significant role in wastewater treatment, ensuring that water released back into the environment is free from pollutants. It is a crucial step in safeguarding ecosystems and public health. This process involves the removal of suspended solids, sediments, and other visible particles from wastewater. Treatment also means the introduction of chemicals into the water to insure the safe delivery of the water from the plant to your home. Chemicals such as Chlorine and Chloramines.

What is Physical Water Processing?

Introducing the WaterCrest, a groundbreaking leap in technology, design, efficiency, aesthetics, and environmental responsibility in Whole House Water Treatment Systems. Physical because the system has no moving parts and uses no electricity or chemicals (like softener salt) to treat the water. Physical water processing uses water pressure to physically push contaminated water through a series of filters with each filter reducing the contaminants down, but allowing minerals, like calcium and magnesium, to remain in the water.

What makes the WaterCrest system different than other systems?

Water enters the WaterCrest and flows through a series of proprietary cartridges equipped with state-of-the-art filtration media and scale inhibition technology. Water is forced through various filter materials with different pore sizes. As the water passes through these filters, particles larger than the filter’s pores are physically blocked and trapped. The BioGuard processes the water for a wide range of contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, cysts, DNA, pharmaceuticals, PFAS (additional P9B filter required), PCB’s metals, chlorine, chloramines tastes and odors. The final filter(s), the Scale Inhibitors, render hardness ions in the water inert, preventing them from affecting hard or metallic surfaces as they move throughout your home. The outcome is water of exceptional quality available from every tap throughout your entire home.


Whether you are concerned about the water your family consumes, aiming to create an eco-friendly household, or dealing with specific health conditions, physical water processing holds a crucial role in maintaining the water quality in your home. By understanding the filtration processes involved, you can make informed decisions about the water treatment methods that best suit your needs. Remember, clean water is not just a necessity—it is a right that ensures the well-being of your family and the environment.
